If the arrival of hot weather has you rushing off to cover up your thighs or perhaps even not wanting to venture to the beach, then you are not alone. If this sounds like you, then you may wish to consider cellulite reduction treatment.
Suffering from cellulite can destroy your confidence and your willingness to show off your curves. Some women may even feel embarrassed to get undress in front of their partner.
Cellulite is a very common condition found mostly in women but it can affect men also. It is believed that 80 to 90 percent of women have some form of cellulite. It is most commonly found on the thighs, buttocks and stomach regions. The top layer of skin will be affected by uneven indents or a dimpling effect. This takes away the smooth even skin texture desired by all women. Cellulite is not nearly as common in men because their connective tissue is different from woman’s.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by the bulging of pockets of fat between the facial connections underneath the skin. This causes the dimpling appearance of the skin. Women store fat in columns, unlike men who store fat in a lattice. This predisposes women to bulging of the fat pockets.
A number of factors contribute to the development of cellulite, including, lifestyle, genetic and hormonal factors. Lower estrogen as we age can lead to a decrease of collagen and elastin in the connective tissue. The connective tissue weakens and the bulging of the fat pockets worsens. As we age the skin also thins, making the fat pockets much more visible.
Cellulite is more common in women that are overweight and of older age. Women of normal weight can also suffer from cellulite.
Can You Get Rid of Cellulite?
You should be wary of claims made to sell products and treatments that will get rid of cellulite. It is not possible to completely eliminate cellulite. Some treatment can definitely help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. These treatments usually require several treatment sessions and will need to be maintained over time.
Cellulite does not pose any health risk and does not need to be treated. It may however affect your confidence. If this is the case for you, then it is certainly well worth contemplating a cellulite reduction treatment.
There are many treatment options for cellulite. None will be effective in ridding you of cellulite. However, some treatments will be more effective than others in reducing the appearance of cellulite. Perhaps the bottom line is that having more muscle will make your skin look smoother and firmer. Replacing fat with muscle will make cellulite less noticeable.
Another method recommended by Advanced Cosmetic Medicine is the Nu Era RF treatment by Lumenis. This is a more targeted approach for those difficult areas that just don’t seem to improve with exercise alone.
NuEra RF Cellulite Reduction Treatment
Because cellulite is accentuated by fat deposits and thin skin, RF treatment is ideal as it targets both the fat and the thin skin, by encouraging collagen production.
When RF is delivered deep into the skin, the heating effect causes fat cells to be destroyed. The fat cells will naturally be resorbed into the body through the lymphatic system. Additionally, the heating effect on the skin causes the skin to go in a “healing mode”, allowing for the production of collagen and elastin. This creates a firming and volumizing effect on the skin.
The visual appearance of cellulite will now be reduced since the fat cells have now been depleted from your body and the skin has become thicker and firmer.
What is Involved in theNuEra RF Cellulite Reduction Treatment?
Depending on your pain tolerance, a topical numbing cream may be applied.
Next, a coupling gel will be applied to the skin to help lubricate the skin and provide an additional barrier between the skin and the handpiece. The handpiece will then be applied to the skin and moved over the skin in a systematic manner to cover the treatment area. Following the treatment, a cold compress and soothing gel may be applied to your face for your comfort.
A series of treatment is usually necessary to see improvements. To maintain the achieved results, regular treatments will need to be performed.
As mentioned before the goal of RF is to reduce and diminish the appearance of cellulite, not to remove it completely.
